The Just Tattoo of Us host told the Daily Star Online about the incident.

He said: “I was driving 70mph and in the distance saw a car frantically swerving. It was like something out of an action movie, like a dream.

“The black mini was swerving left and right. I said to Rob, ‘Oh, this is really bad’.

“I thought she’d lost control and then would carry on driving. But she kept spinning.

“As she went left, I went right to go round it. But as I went right, she went right. I thought, ‘This ain’t good’.”

The reality star went on to say that his brother was terrified and “screaming his head off”.

Stephen explained that the woman ended up crashing into a wall and he got out to help her.

He continued: “I just about broke in time. I was directly behind her and had cars whizzing behind me.

“Her airbags came out and her windows were smashed. I put the hazards on and dived out of the car.

“As I jumped out she stumbled out of the mini, a car literally missed her by centimetres.”

“Everyone started getting out of their cars to help though after that. I said to her, ‘Listen babe, you’ll be alright’, gave her a cuddle and drove off,” he added.

Reflecting on the scary experience Stephen admitted he “felt like Superman” after comforting the woman.

He said: “It was so mad. She text me in the morning saying, ‘Thanks for saving my life, I don’t know how to repay you.’

“A lot of people would have driven off. Her car’s written off. She could have died. I felt like I’m Superman.”

The woman ended up tweeting the star to thank him for helping her.

She wrote: “@stephen_bear A huge thank you for being my saviour this evening. Sorry I scared Rob! #M5 #rescue #dontknowhowtorepayyou.”

Stephen replied: “Don’t be silly, I’m just glad you was OK and over the moon we got out safe xx god was looking down on us xx.”

The star recently reunited with girlfriend Charlotte Crosby after spending some time away from each other.

Former Geordie Shore star Charlotte shared a snap of them together as she wrote: “Back with trouble 👫 @stevie_bear ❤️.”
